romney's comments from governors christie and jindal and, you know, martinez. they're the national figure that is this party has to deal with much more than maybe someone running a prime time hour on another channel. >> problem i have with this having been at the democratic party in 2005 when we were licking our wounds from 2004 and trying to understand what happened and what changes we needed to make, you didn't see this kind of vial talk. instead, we said what can we do differently. it was the 350-stiate strategy d the idea that you have to ask them for their vote, not insult half the country over and over and over again. >> karen, richard, thank you so much. more on the president's attempt at reconciliation. he even bought the birthday boy a bottle of wine. >> we won't embarrass him with a cake because we didn't know how many candles were needed. >> yeah, right. >> but we do want to wish him a happy birthday. >> thank you, thank you.

the president but romney got 2% fewer votes than john mccain. by any measure a poor performance for governor romney. mccain was run fwhoog a recession. it's more about romney's failure to build on mccain's votes than obama doing anything. mr. obama won the woman vote. blacks and asians but waits the hispanic vote that really nailed romney. 71% of la teen yoz voted for the president. that is the difference in florida, virginia, colorado, nevada. other states as well. romney took white males and independents by a significant margin but when you bunch it up, it was an entitlement vote this year, american families earning less than $30,000 a year broke big for the president. 62% to 35. it was clear left wing ideology did not win the day for barack obama. big spending on federal programs did. that is the key. because many in the media would have us believe liberal ideology was confirm bid this election. it was not. however, however, secularism is certainly eroding traditional power, those americans attend religious services voted for romney 59%39%. problem is church going is on the decline. here
. republicans have buried their playbook along with governor romney. the big question is what will the new playbook look like? joining me is democratic strategist and susan, a republican strategist. you read that, you go, wow. >> ouch. >> how deep is this? is it toxic load, get rid of him, move on? the rga certainly seems to say that. >> first of all, governor romney, his political career was over on election night. he never showed any interest in being a leader for the republican party. >> it's not so much they have to bury limb. >> start appealing to a wider base of voters. it's not tossing him aside, i don't think he was going to be a player. his remarks earlier this week were very unfortunate. it almost gave a platform for this new branding of republicans. and also saying we're going to be more open. we're not going to allow people who aren't voters to dictate our policies in the media. and what we want to govern most of all, we're more open to seeing that out of the republican party. >> richard, talk to what susan brings up. a couple of days ago in politico, they reported this -- on g

( laughter ). marijuana... bat ( bleep ) crazy. they also legal ides dancing in that town in "footloose." i probably should have looked that up. wisconsin elected tammy baldwin the first openly lesbian senator. sorry, lindsay graham. yeah. you missed the lindsay graham joke. it was a pretty good one. ( laughter ). perhaps the best news was in florida. after months of republican governor rick scott attempting to suppress democratic voter turnout, and attempting to decrease voter discomfort and my favorite introducing a 10-page novelette state ballot to people who couldn't handle a ( bleep ) one-page ballot. florida remains too close to call. what is the good news, you say?

that governor romney is spending some time with his family. and my hope is, before the end of the year, though, that we have a chance to-- to sit down and talk. you know, there-- there are certain aspects of governor romney's record and his ideas that i think could be very helpful. and, well, to give you one example, i do think he did a terrific job running the olympics. >> reporter: no word on when such a meeting could take place. >> ifill: in case you missed it, you can watch the complete news conference on our web site. coming up, more from the president's first post-election news conference on the investigation into the generals' scandal and his second-term agenda. plus, israeli air strikes in gaza and one family's battle with meningitis. but first, with the other news of the day, here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: the president's challenge to republicans today on taxes sets up a new confrontation in congress. even before the white house news conference, senate minority leader mitch mcconnell warned again that raising rates on high-income earners will have almost no effect on the def
they confirmed the authenticity of the recording november 14th. quote, governor romney was simply elaborating on what obama senior strais david axelrod had said about the obama campaign's evident to target key demographics, most specifically women. that was the other demographic targeted by the president bought with free birth control obviously. as for paul ryan, he just can't believe urban americans managed to leave their sad, cramped apartments and tenments and made the long trek to the voting booth. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout especially in urban areas which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> apparently mr. ryan forgot his opponents were giving out free birth control. should have seen that coming. now, some in the gop are trying to escape this whirling vortex of deep denial and blame, especially those looking to run in 2016. louisiana governor bobby jindal was out at a mike within hours. >> i absolutely reject that notion, that description. i think that's absolutely wrong. i don't think that represents where we are a
it didn't elect governor romney, but they had a huge influence on the race and the next elections. >> i've heard so many people say since the election, this proves that big money didn't make that much of a difference because it was sort of a wash. >> i think there are a couple of ways that actually made a big difference this year. the first one which is counterintuitive is it may have actually badly injured romney and the reason for that is after citizens united you had these so-called candidate super pacs and in the republican primaries last spring you had romney who was widely the leader and assumed to have it wrapped up and then you had two other candidates who came up and had millions of dollars spent on their behalf by super pacs and kept the race open. they were the gingrich candidacy and his super pac and the santorum one. what it meant was that instead of wrapping thins up in february, romney waited, had all of these primaries where he was attacked and he ended up the primary season somewhat wounded because these republican super pacs had run really vicious ads against them and
the gop is trying to figure out its next move after governor romney's loss on election day our next guest says the answer is, quote, staring them right in the face, recommending that party leaders look to republican governors who are doing big things around the country. he is the national journal hotline executive editor. you say republican governors out there have solved and confronted a lot of the issues that mitt romney was taking about or maybe not talking about. >> what is remarkable is there is so much soul searching taking place within the republican party especially on capitol hill when it's the governors that have outlined a conservative reform agenda. you look in new jersey when chris christie took office, he was able to pass even saoeultment reform, pension reform with the support of even some democrats who were initially opposed to him. you look at bobby jindal of louisiana who has taken over the republican governor's association and he was able to gain a claim for his leadership in the wake of hurricane katrina and ed indication reform. they are setting a model for how republ
to mitt romney. governor, is the president pressing his luck or is this what you do when you win an election? >> it's what you do when you win an election. in the long-term it's really needed. if we're going to do four or five trillion dollars of a debt deal, you have to have that level of revenue. i think we can have it. the meeting with the ceos is very important. as you know, judd gregg and i are co-chairs of the campaign to fix the debt. business has responded big-time. they've given over $35 million for a public relations campaign and business has to take the message to the republicans in congress that we're serious about this. this has to happen. it has to happen with significant revenue and that revenue not only comes from raising rates on the top 2%, but it comes from getting rid of a lot of loopholes. some plans with governor romney espoused during the campaign. >> there's a difference, governor, isn't there, between funding an organization that says get something done and funding an organization that says raise our taxes by a lot, right? they're not the same necessarily
, and condemn what mitt romney had to say. that's why you saw scott walk, governor of wisconsin, do the same thing. my guess is, if mitt romney continues to speak in this regard you'll see even more people high profile people come out and say -- and it's hard in a way, what mitt romney's try to-ing to do make peace why he lost. this is not, in my conversations with republican types, this is not the way they would like him to be doing it. >> the romney campaign has issued a statement of explanation. i put that in quotes. governor romney was simply elaborating on what david axelrod said about the obama campaign efforts to target key demographics specifically women. >> well, andrea, if i can quickly -- look, every campaign and candidate takes the policies that they've either put into place or would put into place and targets those two the communities they think would most benefit, would feel enthusiastic about them. that's campaign practice 101. that's why i think what mitt romney said, what he meant i leave up to him, but what he said sounds like he's accusing president obama's campaign of doi
aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> now, louisiana's republican governor, bobby jindal, says romney has it all wrong and he is not speaking for the entire republican party. he says that the gop plans to rebound from its election loss, it has to stop dividing the american voters. soledad? >> yeah, that's making some waves this morning. that full transcript of what he said, i mean, people can check out. i think it's in "the new york times," the "l.a. times" as well. a fascinating read. >> i thought it was remarkable, and actually quite surprised to read it, for a few reasons. >> or you can say, sounds like the 47% once again. we'll talk more about that. no surprise. let's get right to our next guest, chris van hollen. nice talking to you. >> good morning, soledad. >> let's talk about the escalation in out and out fighting now between israel and the palestinian militants. there are now 100 terror sites, apparently, according to israel, that they are attacking, in response to rocket attacks that have come from the palestinians. what is your take on what's happening here right now and how li
in mind about governor romney is, a, he's shocked that he lost. he mentioned that on the call, too. he really can't quite get over that he lost. he really thought he was going to win. and he's a data-driven guy. so he's already sort of doing a postmortem going back -- >> this is data mining. >> -- trying to figure out what went wrong. and this is one of the things -- >> mayor, it's interesting that a money guy -- i've always noted the sort of symmetry of politics, the mutuality -- people that have a little problem wethics always kutz other pers accuse the other person of ethics problem. someone who bought everything he ever got including his highly paid staff in the campaign. everybody was happy with using money on that side. he assumes he must have been outbid. >> that's exactly what someone who thinks he can buy votes was in fact doing. this guy is a salesman, chris. he doesn't know anything about making decisions based on whether or not it's something you believe in. he is of the opinion that money can generate belief, and in this case he doesn't understand how money didn't generate
and tweeting images of the governor during private moments. among them, a smiling romney backstage watching his wife address millions of americans from the republican national convention. and this weekend, romney sending a note to supporters, "this was more than just a campaign. this was a national movement," he wrote. he did not specifically reference his loss to the president, writing, "we still believe that better days are ahead." and in talking with my campaign sources over the weekend, even many of those closest to romney don't know what he'll do next. the romneys are expected to travel to their san diego home to spend time with family. many do expect romney's focus to include board work and his work with the morton church. >>> we turn tonight now to the major weather headline, and a huge cold front marching across the center of the nation, already dropping heavy snow in salt lake city and up to 48 inches in the utah mountains. and in kansas tonight, 50 reports of severe weather. these thunderstorms in kansas all part of the season. abc meteorologist ginger zee tracking this since "good mo

the strength of character and this is over the years in the republican and democratic party governor. romney is now a senator from virginia who had a great depth of character who have self-confidence in a quiet set of ways that could have made an excellent president but they chose -- they were not able to win in the primary. that's one thing is you could ask of the primaries or better than the old smoke-filled room but they are not equal to that. that is another topic, other question, another paper. any other questions? >> yes. well, thank you very much. >> where we invite a guest hosts to interview authors. this week historian james patterson and his latest book the eve of destruction how 1965 transformed america to read in
, as you know this conference call just wrapped up hours ago, governor romney blamed this defeat on what he described as big gifts that the president had given to some of the democrats most loyal voting block. among them african-americans, young voters and hispanics he called it the old play book rule with specific interest groups. he said with regard to young people, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift. he added free contraception was very big with college-aged women. and finally, he said obama-care made a difference, likewise with hispanic voters, health care was a big plus. he is scheduled to meet with top advisers tomorrow night. one thing is sure in terms of his future. he said the donors may play a part in helping him select the next republican nominee, but it won't be romney, he said. certainly bubbling up as a big story today, late in the day, peter alexander, just off the trail to get much-needed rest, thank you for joining us much-needed rest, thank you for being with us. >>> >>> overseas there is serious concern that a new war in the middle east just became more

, they are go ing to put some blame and the republicans are going to put some blame on governor romney and we saw the 47% comments made at the fund-raiser move numbers and both sides jumped on it. the democrats were terrified and the republicans seemed to double-down on it, and he is doubling down on the comments and that is not helpful in the way we want to move forward and after the election the nominee is g is going to smooth over some of his reputation and some of the hits he took by trying to explain away in what happened in the loss and the republicans are going to beat him up for the woes of the party even though he does not need all of the blame and deserve all of the blame, that is what happens after elections. >> around karen, newt gingrich over the weekend called mitt romney's comments nuts. louisiana governor bobby jindal has denounced the comments as well ferociously right out of the gate when he heard them. do you believe the republican party as a whole believes it is time for a dramatic makeover, and i was having a conversation with someone over the weekend that they said that

to speaking with governor romney, sitting down in the coming weeks to discuss ways you could work together on this nation's problems have you extended that invitation? has he accepted? and what ways do you think you can work together? >> we haven't scheduled something yet. i think everybody forgets the election was only a week ago. i know i've forgotten, i forgot on wednesday. i think everybody needs to catch their breath. i'm sure that governor romney is spending time with his family. and my hope is before the end of the year, though, we have a chance to sit down and talk. there are certain aspects of governor romney's record and his ideas that i think could be very helpful. to give you one example, i think he did a terrific job running the olympics. and that skill set of trying to figure out how do we make something work better applies to the federal government. there are a lot of ideas that i don't think are partisan ideas but are just smart ideas about how can we make the federal government more customer friendly, how can we make sure that we're consolidating programs that are duplicat

in the polls, was the president obama defeated governor romney among self-described moderates by 15 points. so this is an expression. because a lot of people would say president obama is the least centerleft. but it is all compared it. compared to governor romney, and i think really the republican party, including those statements that todd akin and murdoch made, it seemed like they were far off from the center. i also think, is an as an independent i can give advice to both parties -- [laughter] the party of ronald reagan and jack kemp, the party of upward mobility -- it didn't seem to be the republican party this year. maybe it was because of the very effective attack campaign against mitt romney being with bain capital, 47% and all that stuff. but i think hispanics and asians and a lot of women did not vote for the republican party, not just if you are hispanic or anti-immigrant, but because it didn't seem like a kind of party that was going to create a country in which you were going to have a chance to rise up. it seemed, by their own statement and the definition the democrats gave them,
you said that you were looking foard to speaking with governor romney sitting down in the coming weeks to discuss ways that you could work together on this nation's problems. have you extended that invitation? has he accepted and in what ways do you think you can work together? >> we haven't scheduled something yet. i think everybody forgets that the election was only a week ago and i know i've forgotten. i forgot on wednesday. so i think everybody needs to catch their breath. i'm sure that governor romney is spending some time with his family. and my hope is before the end of the year, though, we have a chance to sit down and talk. there are certain aspects of governor romney's record and his ideas that i think could be very helpful. and, well, to give you one example, i do think he did a terrific job running the olympics. and, you know, that skill set of trying to figure out how do we make something work better applies to the federal government. there are a lot of ideas that i don't think are partisan ideas, but are just smart ideas about how can we make the federal government more c
you a question about when we heard a little bit about governor romney explaining to his donors why he lost one of the things he's talking about is gifts and we heard from governor jindal coming out very harshly about that also susan martinez as well the gifts include young people get a gift of forgiveness of their college loans and obama care, for college age women get free contraceptives, minorities get obama care. latinos get amnesty for the children of latinos. all these, you know, sort of these gifts that he talked about, here's what governor jindal said, about that. i'm going to play that first. >> this is not where the republican party needs to go. look, we want -- if you want voters to like you the first thing you've got to do is to like them first. and it's certainly not helpful to tell voters that you think their votes were bought. that's not a way to show them that you respect them, you like them. we need to stop talking down to voters. >> so what do you make of that? do you agree with what governor jindal is saying? do you think that governor romney is correct that and that
for governor romney during the campaign. so he is someone who believes in this cause and we're bringing together a very large group of people that will be part of it. but the idea is to raise money and to be able to exercise our free speech and talk about the fact that we support immigration reform, we can't give money to candidates but we can surely talk about issues that you know that correspond to certain candidates in certain districts and regional gones and this is the way to make change. we can't just keep talking about it and can't assume this problem is going to go away. so i'm very, very pleased to be giving this another shot. because we've tried this before and we have to fix it. it's one of those things that we have to confront and we have to fix. we can't ignore and up until now we've been sort of punting the ball down the road, iing norring it and the situation gets more complex. we're talking about families now. we're not talking about individuals but kids who have been in school who don't know any other country but the u.s. it's time to come to terms with a mistake that a
said that you were looking forward to speaking with governor romney sitting down in the coming weeks to discuss ways that you could work together on this nation's problems. have you extended the invitation, has he accepted, and in what ways do you think you can work together? president obama: we haven't scheduled anything yet. i think everybody forgets the election was only a week ago. i for i have forgotten. i forgot wednesday. so -- i think everybody needs to catch their breath. i'm sure governor romney is spending some time with his family. and my hope is before the even of the year we have a chance to talk. there are certain aspects of governor romney's record and his ideas that i think could be very helpful. and to give one example, i do think he did a terrific job running the olympics. and, you know, that skill set of trying to figure out how do we make something work better apply to the federal government. there are a lot of ideas i doesn't think are partisan ideas but are just smart ideas about how can we make the federal government more customer-friendly. how can we make sur

stream. the positions of governor romney that he took in the primary on immigration reform. the positions that he took on women's health issues and contraception and planned parenthood drove large numbers of voters away from them, and then on economic, central to this election. they had a theory that frankly was not a popular theory in the country which is that you know, if we go back to tax cuts for the wealthy and deregulation that would profit everyone, and then for romney himself, there were specific things that he did. i think that the decision in the final week to try and litigate the auto bailout again, in ohio, had a tremendously negative impact there, and perhaps beyond ohio. so, you know, in the final analysis, there are a lot of factors here, but in the short-term, that was a very bad decision, in my view. >> people are looking to what happened and saying, look, the senate remains with democrat house with republicans. barack obama re-elected. not much change. how can we expect the washington machine, many consider fractured if not paralyzed to get things done? the speaker boehn

in benghazi as an act of terrorism on september 12th, then emphasize that in his second debate with governor romney and we now know that in an interview with 60 minutes on the same day, he explicitly refused to characterize the attack this way and then spent nearly two weeks putting the emphasis on a spontaneous protest including his address to the united nations on september 25th? why did our ambassador to the united nations in interviews five days after the attack also try to blame on the hitful video when it was clear from the earliest hours of the attack that it was a sophisticated offensive, that no protest ever occurred outside of our consulate in benghazi and if ambassador rice was relying on intelligence assessments, why were those so dramatically at odds with the earliest reports from our people on the ground? and perhaps most importantly, why does the administration still appear to have no policy to deal with the fact that al-qaeda and affiliated groups that have established sanctuaries in eastern libya, a government eager for our assistance. this is perhaps the most troubling ques
would like to believe that governor romney once he reviews those remarks, will have regret having said them. he doesn't want to become vice president of excuses. but until and unless republicans get in touch with the fact-based world, in particular with science, global warming comes to mind, evolution comes to mind, until they get in touch with this, it's very hard to see how your optimism and my hopes are going to be fulfilled. but hope springs eternal, and with mitch mcconnell, who i think is the key for the republicans, their leader in the senate, that, you know, he was ungracious in the first hours after the election results were known. he has been the lead preacher of the gospel of obstructionism. and if he continues to that, not only will the republican party, i think, find the capital dome sort of, they'll be in a temple of doom if they continue to do this. you just can't do it. with the election itself, this election is going to be studied for a very long time. this is now the 21st century and what president obama did, he hired math wizards and so called stat geeks, and they de

and governor romney and your wives were shocked by the results that were coming in. true? >> it is true. yeah. the polling we had, the numbers we were looking at looked like we stood a pretty good chance of winning, so when the numbers came in going the other direction, when we saw the kind of turnout that was occurring in urban areas which were really fairly unprecedented, it did come as a bit of a shock. those are the tough kind of losses to have, the ones that catch you by surprise. >> some critics jumped on those remarks and said historically urban has often been used as a code word for african-american voters. we can't say for sure what ryan meant there. but keeping them honest the election day picture was a bit more complicated than that. turnout among african-american voters was up this year and turnout was up in swing state cities but down in others. and the presidents win was not solely dependent on black or urban voters. he also won more than 7 in 10 asian, latino voters, 6 in 10 young voters and 55% of women voters nationwide. what's more, white voters played a big role in the pres
interesting numbers to me, maybe not surprising in the polls, was the president obama defeated governor romney among self-described moderates by 15 points. so this is an expression. and he asked a lot of complications complicated questions about who are they. a lot of people would say that president obama is centerleft. but it's all compared to. compared to governor romney, and i think really the republican party, including the statements that todd akin and richard murdoch made, it seemed like they were are off from the center. as an independent, i can give advice to both parties. >> ronald reagan and jack kemp -- the party of upward mobility, that didn't seem to be the republican party this year. now, maybe it was because of this very effective attack campaign against mitt romney and bain capital and 47% of all that stuff. but i think hispanics and asians -- and a lot of women, they didn't vote for the republican party not just if you are hispanic because you think their anti-immigrant, but because it doesn't seem like the kind of party that will create a country in which you are were going t
million people that voted for governor romney my question is do you hear our voices? the democratic party speaks about compromise. do you hear the voices that we have put across to you guys? at this point we need real compromise. do you see anything happening on the horizon that will take our voices, the people that voted against raising taxes into account, is this something we will see some, or will the fiscal fiasco drag on forever? guest: we are hearing your voice. we are hearing everybody's voice. we have looking at this in balanced way. in order to have balance, you have to make sure that the scales are not to it. in terms of the tax policy, the truth of the matter is scales have been tipped in favor of the wealthy. we really want balance. a report showed that over 90% going back to 2010 show that 90% of the income -- 90% of the income growth went to the upper 1%. people favor a more balanced approach where everybody does their fair share, including the very wealthy. this is not an effort to punish. it is an effort to say to people, "do your share." we are listening to everybody. the
